Hello Red Wings fans! The family and I had a great time at today’s home opener against the Buffalo Bisons today with a good opening day attendance of 8,473 fans. It was at it’s warmest temperature today a scorching 59 degrees and I even had to take my coat off!
After 13 innings the final score was 8-6 Buffalo
Things of note:
First pitch in the season against Buffalo was a strike
First hit for the season by the Red Wings was a double!
…and something that I never noticed before, not sure how new this is but when the Red Wings score you hear the old Nintendo sound of when Mario gets a coin in Super Mario Brother’s. Pretty cool
Red Wings had some errors that in my mind cost them the game.
Here are some of the pictures I took of today. If you have any of your own you would like to see up here please comment below and add them.
Waiting to get in while listening to “take me out to the ball game…”

Cow Bell√, Schedule magnet√, Program√ HOME RUN! WOOT!
As you can see in the photos we were all dressed up for cold weather with blankets included! If you come prepared it is well worth it. Makes everything that much more enjoyable. If the family is happy and can get along without being cold then we can cheer for the Red Wings that much louder! I have to admit, I rang the hell out of that cow bell
Food was good, service was excellent. Yes it is expensive but hey, your supporting various things you should care about supporting. That is why your there in the second place for right? The first is to have a good time and support the Red Wings right?!
I also took some video of the opening ceremonies on my Samsung Galaxy S3 phone and I am uploading it to Youtube now. Going to take awhile it seems AND it seems to be the wrong orientation. Not sure if I am going to be able to get that corrected tonight so sorry about that.
As for the Podcast…working on that also. Since I have redesigned the website I am working on getting all of the formats working out the way I want them to and the way that they SHOULD be working. There is also the way that all of you would like to have the format as well. The intention is to have the podcast ready as soon as I have the blog go out. So yes, I have some bugs and timing to work out. Thank you in advance for your patience.
